Product Description

Performance range:

  • Available belt widths: 0.5 to 3.0 meter
  • Capacities: from 2 to 150 m3/h

Common Applications:

Anywhere, where solid liquid separation is required.

How it works:

The operating principle of the belt press is focused around the cake being squeezed between two belts under tension. The applied pressure on the sludge increases gradually as the belts pass through a series of rollers of decreasing diameters. This also produces a shearing effect on the cake that favours the liquid phase evacuation.

Structural characteristics:

TEFSA belt filter presses have the following characteristics:

  • They are automatic and continuous.
    They are designed to operate without assistance from operators.
  • They have low investment and operating costs.
  • Low energy consumption.
    Even when operating on a continuous basis, the drive motors have very low power requirements.
  • All the models available in our range can be supplied
    with different belt widths in order to comply with the capacity requirements of each case.
  • TEFSA belt filter presses are robust and compact in construction.
    Our designs and constructions have been engineered in order to perform under continuous operating conditions without interruptions. They can be specially adapted when a small foot print is required in relation to the designated capacity.
